The updated Monal Photography Blind - V2 maximizes comfort and versatility.
It is our largest blind and can accommodate two photographers or one
photographer operating multiple cameras. The Monal has 6 main shooting windows
that can be customized to provide varying levels of concealment or visibility
depending on the subject being photographed or filmed. It comes with a variety
of interchangeable window panes and lens sleeves that can be used on each of
the blinds shooting windows and includes provisions for using a flash.
The Monal window system has been updated in a number of ways to be more
waterproof and to operate silently without the use of Velcro. To avoid water
leaking inside the shooting windows, we’ve added a screen which entirely covers
the shooting window from the outside when not in use. The screen is opened with
two ropes that can be operated silently from inside the blind. Each screen
incorporates a small survey windows that can be opened or closed and will fit a
small telephoto lens or binoculars. These windows give the photographer
improved visibility around the blind.
The Monal erects and packs down in minutes using a robust hub system. The
removable floor can be left in place making the blind perfect for overnight
camping or working in wet areas. The blind is also well ventilated with a rain
fly suspended above a mostly mesh roof. This stops condensation from forming on
cold days and keeps it from getting too hot in the sun. The optionalScreen Door
lens sleeve can be added to one or both of theMonal's doors for even more air
flow on hot days.
The Monal is constructed with 150D waterproof polyester which drys as fast as
nylon but is significant stronger and holds up far better to UV exposure. The
interior of the fabric is now coated with an opaque isotherm PU coating that
reduces the temperature inside of the blind in sunlight and creates total
darkness inside the blind to prevent silhouetting when the blind is back-lit.
